The following press release was sent out by the Ammon Bundy campaign. Press releases do not necessarily reflect the views and opinions of those at the Idaho Dispatch.
Boise City’s recent park cancellation of the Ammon Bundy for Governor Keep Idaho IDAHO Rally once again highlights the attitude of discrimination of Mayor McLean and Boise City officials.
Mayor McLean’s 2022 Boise has become no better than Birmingham City in the 1960s, where Martin Luther King Jr. was discriminated against for organizing peaceful rallies to bring awareness to government abuse and injustice.
Mayor McLean has proven to stand only for those who politically align with her and persecute those who do not. Need I remind her of Martin Luther King, Jr’s wise words? “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”
Men becoming women is more probable than my political agenda aligning with Mayor McLean’s liberal, woke utopia. But does this mean that mayors should use their power to restrict free speech in cities, and if so, then where should I hold my campaign events?
If I was a gay Democrat would Mayor McLean’s Jim Crow type philosophy affect my ability to hold an event in Boise? I thought these questions were settled more than 60 years ago. So much for Mayor McLean being a “tolerant progressive”.
